A new generation of young professionals will have a step up on their corporate career ladders thanks to a new book that aims to explain how to succeed in your first job.
Relevant and timely training for new hires is critical for productivity, employee engagement and talent retention, and this is even more true for the Millennial generation who have higher expectations for career advancement and training and development, and are more apt to switch jobs.
The new book helps readers navigate the unspoken rules that define corporate life and supports these rules with practical advice from experienced executives and managers from companies such as Procter & Gamble, Google and Johnson & Johnson, as well as advertising agencies, consultancies, and start-ups.
In How to Succeed in Your First Job, authors Anna Lundberg and Serena De Maio reveal the six key areas on which young professionals should focus in order to fast-track their career from day one:
• making a good first impression;
• securing the support of their boss;
• managing their time and energy effectively;
• thinking strategically;
• communicating their message clearly: and
• collaborating with their broader team.
Career coach and business consultant Anna Lundberg and entrepreneur and marketing consultant Serena De Maio together run Wolf Leaders Academy, an organisation that provides virtual training and coaching for individuals as well as face-to-face group sessions for universities and businesses.
Anna Lundberg, co-author and lead trainer with Wolf Leaders Academy, said, “Corporate training programmes are too slow, too longwinded or, frankly, too corporate to get the key points across in the critical period of an employee’s first weeks and months. It’s our hope that Wolf Leaders Academy can fill that gap by bringing comprehensive but straightforward tips and techniques directly to young professionals as they embark on their career, starting with How to Succeed in Your First Job.”
Serena De Maio, co-author and lead trainer, added, “This is the book Anna and I wished we’d had when we started out. We felt that we had to learn the unspoken rules governing the corporate world the hard way and after chatting to colleagues, we realised we weren’t the only ones. Our book is packed full of practical advice and inspiration from a host of experienced executives and managers and we hope that it will inspire and encourage anyone starting their journey on the corporate ladder.”
The book is available on Amazon for a launch price of £0.99 and later at full price £9.99.
First reviews include:
“A book full of useful and concrete tips to get you started in the corporate world. Gives a great ‘insiders perspective’ on how things work & how to succeed. Also super fun to read :)”
“I wish I had this book available when I started at Procter & Gamble but I’m happy that it is available now for those that want to have an unfair advantage from the very early days of building their careers.”
“Chock-full of practical and focused insights. A worthwhile read for anyone who wants to kick-start their career in the corporate world.”
